The 2019 Event was held on Sunday 12th May
The largest turnout for the Sawston Fun Run and Walk since 2010 with one thousand, one hundred and six entrants is winning news
for our charitable beneficiaries this year which include Cambridge Cancer Help Centre, based in The David Rayner Building
at Scotsdales, Footprints cafe, Icknield Primary School, Sawston Youth Drama, Sawston Youth Group,
Granta School, Linton; Pippins Pre-school, Sawston Cinema Club, Sawston Guides, Sawston Sports Centre, Whittlesford U. R. Church Pilates
Whitsers pre-school and the Ladybird Playgroup, Thriplow and seven local primary schools.
Many in the community contributed by providing stalls at the venue or their time as volunteers, such as local aerobics trainer, Marlene Sharpe-Westwood who got the runners warmed up, whilst over 30 members of The Cambridge Building Society undertook numerous supporting roles.
The Sawston Youth Group Band attracted crowds in the High Street whilst the scouts, the air and army cadets, the cricket club, members of other Rotary clubs and students from Sawston Village College all helped in different ways.
Chairman of the organising committee Rotarian Ian Chamberlain said "Many people made the event a big success by supporting us as marshals or by manning water stations. We thank them, staff of The Cambridge Building Society and other sponsors and businesses and those in Sawston who contributed in some way. It was just so good to see everyone enjoying themselves".
